Professional in every aspect of Legal World
I was referred by a friend who was an attorney for different legal representation himself to contact 3 attorneys that I was to meet and decide on who to hire for my divorce. When I met Leslie as the first of 3, we sat across the table from each other and I immediately knew that I could trust her to help get me through my divorce as well as other protective avenues that were being presented to me. I knew she had my best interest in getting a resolution as fast as possible but with her due diligence to make sure I was covering all needed aspects about my case. Leslie listened to my story at the initial meeting and continued to build on my story as the meetings progressed. She knew every aspect with details from her findings with me. Leslie knew every detail to each state and each legal defense that was needed to be discussed and the findings. Her organization of documents and findings were always perfect and presented in the most professional manner. She knew or had the answer to all my needs of defense.There are many traits that people in the legal world have both negative and Positive. Negatives, there honestly are not any negative aspects of the professional lawyer that Leslie is for clients. Positive traits about Leslie include a strong trust for her clients. She is a very good communicator to her client regarding every aspect of the job. Leslie never made me feel that she was doing the job for money, however she learned and understood the full dynamics of what and who she was presenting and she delivered it to the judge as if she was the one defending herself. Leslie had never made the job of being a lawyer un comfortable for me or when my kids were involved. My family knew that Leslie B. Spoltore had my best interest while knowing she was representing a client. Overall, Leslie would receive a grade of A plus if you graded her for how she is as a professional in the legal world. I would hire Leslie again if the situation occurred again. Both Leslie and myself hope that this does not happen which shows what type of lawyer she is to her clients. Leslie is truly a great Lawyer and I would recommend her highly.
